Dry Fried Green Beans

Every once in a while, I get a recipe that I really like and that becomes my new go-to!

This recipe came from the blog below and it really was great.

Dry Fried Green Beans


Makes 4 servings
  • 2 T neutral oil
  • 1 lb green beans, whole, or Chinese long beans, cut into 4" lengths
  • 1 T chopped garlic
  • 1 T chopped fresh ginger
  • 1/4 C chopped scallions
  • 1/2 t sambal oelek or Homemade Sambal
  • 1 T soy sauce
  • 1/2 t sugar
  • + kosher salt


  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a wok over medium heat. After a minute (or as soon as the oil is getting to the oh shit this oil means business level of heat), add the green beans and stir-fry until they start to shrivel and turn brown, 8 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
  2. Turn the heat up to high and add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil. Add the garlic, ginger, and scallions. Stir-fry for a few seconds until fragrant, then add the sambal. Add the green beans, soy sauce, and sugar. Toss until the beans are coated in sauce and heated through. Season to taste with salt and serve immediately.
